    I'm having a problem that seems specific to my PC, which is blocking all Linkshare links. I cannot view Linkshare links on other sites, or verify Linkshare links that I've created.

    I've removed Kazaa, but still having problems. Can anyone suggest some other things I can look into?

    I also have a similar problem with logging into cj.com, and maybe this is all related.

    Thanks for any help,

    Robert

    Robert,

    If you have/had Kazaa Lite installed, it includes an optional ad blocking tool called SuperTrick.

    It is not much more than a modification to your Windows HOSTS file where Windows looks first to find the IP address of a server , adding hundreds of domains and rendering them useless.

    Removing Kazaa Lite may not fix up your hosts file.

    Search for a file called HOSTS on your system and edit it. It's just a text file.

    If this is the problem, edit that file (save a backup copy first) and you'll see a very large number of rows in there along with some indication that they were added by Kazaa Lite.

    Remove those, save the file, and you should be set. Depending on your version of Windows, you may need to reboot.
